Job Update: Final Edition

Wednesday, July 25th, 2012

The past year+ has been one long hamster wheel of misplaced hopes, false starts, stressful job interviews, demeaning job interviews, rejections, missed opportunities, truly Kafkaesque online applications, and above all, ENNUI.  And I don’t even really want a job very much.  I can’t imagine what I’d feel like if I […]
